Sequencing Section (SQC)


The mission of the section is to promote advances in biological science by providing researchers with genomic analyses that utilize the latest and most advanced technologies.


We offer OIST researchers next-generation sequencing (NGS) services in a wide range of NGS applications including de novo genome sequencing, re-sequencing, RNA sequencing, and ChIP sequencing, etc. Please see the "Service List" page for more information.

Currently, we house the following NGS sequencers: NovaSeq6000, MiSeq, PacBio Sequel2, MinION and PromethION. Please see the "NGS Platforms" page for more information.

We help researchers with their project planning, library preparation, and sequencing.

We also manage capillary sequencers, realtime PCR and microarray etc. for common use. Please see "Common Equipment" page for the equipment list and the rules regarding use.

Sequencing Schedule

In principle, we will proceed in the order of Request IDs on a first-come-first-served basis. Sequencing-only requests are completed earlier than the other request IDs, and this may cause the IDs to be back and forth. (Sequencing-only requests are marked ★ on the calendar.) And, we will sort the same applications with close request IDs and proceed all at once, there may be times when data is submitted back and forth.
